Are you an artist, creative, culture bearer, community leader, or traveler who wants to experience the Fergus Falls local arts community? Through the Falls Community Arts Exchange, they invite you to Fergus Falls, Minnesota to engage in the community’s wide range of creative learning opportunities and experiences.

Stewarded by Springboard for the Arts, the Falls Community Arts Exchange is a collaboration of Fergus Falls-based arts and culture organizations interested in fostering artist-led community development and geographic exchange. 

There are two tracks of the Falls Community Arts Exchange:

1. ARTIST TRACK: CREATE, LEARN, AND COLLABORATE 

This career development track is for individual artists interested in deep exchange with rural creative ecosystems, and who are interested in completing a collaborative project that supports local community goals through creative engagement. Visiting artists receive a $4,500 stipend and spend 4 weeks living in Fergus Falls, where they receive support and coaching from Springboard staff, connect with local artists, and work on a modest collaborative project with a local organization. Applications are currently being accepted until March 21, 2024 for stays between July and December 2024. Learn more and apply.

2. INDIVIDUAL TRACK: EXPERIENCE, CONNECT, AND LEARN (COMING SOON) 

This self-designed exchange is for individuals of all backgrounds who are interested in learning from and experiencing the arts community in Fergus Falls. This is a non-competitive, sliding-scale program where visitors select their own dates and choose from a menu of creative experiences to participate in during their stay in Fergus Falls.
